alone with the dark

 
i lie awake & silently scream at night †
the dark crowds in †
with violent whispers †
†  
i see my flaws †
they converge on me †
& surround my trembling soul †
†  
they're the monsters †
i carry in the day †
concealed under †  
well applied makeup †
& my smiling face †
†  
if people looked closer †
they would see †  
the cracks in my veneer †
i've slipped sideways †
in my thoughts †
the fall is coming †
i feel it †  
†  
i walk a fine line †
between sane & insane †
hanging on to what's left of reality †
†  
as the dark crowds in on me †
& whispers violently †  
of a lady letting go †
†  
swimming in a vomit of lies
drowned by my own deceit †
to my horror i realize †
the voices are right †
†  
†
